In its annual report for 2014 NKR presents ten Key messages that make up important events over the year and recommendations for the future. Some of these are:
- In 2014 there has been a sharp increase in compliance costs, mostly accounted for by an introduction of a statutory minimum wage.
- A new government work programme on Better Regulation was adopted in June 2014.
- To improve the legislative procedures when negotiating on new EU-law the Federal Government should promote cost-saving arrangements during the preparations of new legislative proposals by the Commission and during deliverations at the Council of Ministers.
- New clear-cut regulation on limiting and/or reducing red tape and the statutory follow-up costs in Germany needs to be put in place. This will keep up the ambition and interest within the Federal Government.
